Last month, I blogged about cutting out the pages of a dirty ol' paperback (a copy of Michael Pollan's The Botany of Desire) with my husband's box cutter. Here is what I've came up with, using the paperback's inner pages, a glue stick, colored cardstock, miscellaneous magazine clippings, and cotton twine:
|Notecards/giftcards made with each chapter's title (each chapter's title is a human desire, and the plant that humans have made to embody that very desire)|
|Recycled page envelopes with sage green card inserts (to go along with the text's plant theme)|
I think these bookish projects came out pretty well. A nice ending for a hard-knock copy of one of my all-time favorite books (it's fraught with wry humor, and is so well written!). Well, in my opinion.
